Inviting the family to dinner

There were nine of us at our home on Tuesday.  David’s brother, Mike, and his wife, two daughters, and son in law are vacationing in Hawaii.  They normally reside in Boston and New York.  Maria and her son were also here.  Grant and Julia could not make it due to illness:

We had a nice dinner, consisting of sushi, honey mustard chicken, pizzas, string beans, peas, mixed vegetables, and fruit salad.  Dessert was coconut cake:

Here we are, relaxing in the living room after dining around the coffee table.  That appliance on the left is our second refrigerator, which contains beverages and frozen food:

Next week, some of us will be meeting at a cemetery for a burial service, followed by a dim sum lunch at Jade Dynasty.  It’s always pleasant to socialize with pleasant people, in this case our family.

    You and David are gracious hosts. It’s so nice that you can enjoy these family times together.

    Once again you are living life to the fullest and enjoying every minute of it. Live each day as if it is your last day and you certainly do!

    So glad it went well, too bad about the illnesses though it happens.

    You are lucky to have family who travel interstate- there are many who don’t.
    With the mix of food you provided there certainly was something for everyone – and ‘help yourself’ is the only way to go on a friendly informal family gathering like this one.
